Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said on Tuesday that the US has committed "crime" by imposing sanctions against Iran, official IRNA news agency reported.

Calling the anti-Iran sanctions "economic terrorism", Rouhani said it is a "shame" for the US to ban Iranians' access to food and medicine through sanctions, Xinhua reported, citing IRNA.

Rouhani stressed that the U.S. pressures, however, would not force the Iranians to their kneels.

"Despite the unjust and unprecedented sanction pressures, the Iranian scientists, researchers, entrepreneurs and producers have done their utmost, and we are on the path of complete self-sufficiency," he said.

U.S. President Donald Trump pulled Washington out of the landmark 2015 Iranian nuclear deal last year and demanded renewed nuclear talks with Iran for more restrictions on the latter's nuclear programme.

Washington imposed unprecedented sanctions on Iran's economy, particularly on its oil exports, after Tehran dismissed its demands.
